Is 'Friends' Ever Going to Make a Comeback? Jennifer Aniston Hopes Soby

Amid a sea of reboots, remakes and revamps of 80s and 90s TV and movie properties in just the past week alone, it’s perhaps a little surprising that there still haven’t been any concrete plans made for the cast of NBC’s ground-breaking sitcom Friends to make a comeback to the small screen. The show, which ended in 2004, arguably paved the way for the sitcom to become big news again on US network TV in the 1990s, and changed the format for studio-based laughs for years to come – you only have to take a look at big current players such as The Big Bang Theory to notice the influence – whether you loved it or hated it at the time, Friends was unmissable stuff.

Talks of a revival have been ongoing ever since the final episode aired 14 years ago. Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox and David Schwimmer have all gone on to enjoy varied careers in the time since then – and while Aniston may perhaps have enjoyed some of the biggest success out of the six thanks to several box office comedy smashes, she has recently advised that she’d be more than open to returning as Rachel Green in future.

Speaking to InStyle magazine, Aniston declared that demands for the show to come back have been rolling in since before the show originally ended. She still holds her role in NBC’s prime time comedy in extremely high regard, and with good reason. “I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had. I don’t know what it would look like today, but you never know. So many shows are being successfully rebooted.” The actor also addressed concerns that LeBlanc, of the main cast, hasn’t seemed too fussy about joining a relaunch. “Maybe we could talk him into it,” Aniston suggests. “Or we just give it some time and then Lisa, Courteney and I could reboot The Golden Girls and spend our last years together on wicker furniture.”

Plenty of US TV and movie properties have been getting the reboot or remake treatment in recent times – why should Friends be any different? Perhaps it’s still too soon – and without everyone on board, how might the show get back to its best? Who’s to say – but stranger remakes have been mounted in recent years!
